Workers at Sullom Voe vote in favour of mid-May strike


Members of the Unite trade union have voted to go on strike during the middle of May at the Sullom Voe onshore oil processing and storage terminal, one of the largest in Europe, following a dispute with the Shetland Islands Council, Argus reports. The strike could potentially obstruct exports of the UK’s Brent crude, one of the five grades which comprise the North Sea Dated benchmark, and lead to ‘a significant shock to oil processing and supplies’ if the dispute is unresolved.
